The actor spent 14 years with the French singer/actress and fathered two kids with his 41-year-old girlfriend before they split in 2012.
Depp has since announced his engagement to 27-year-old actress Amber Heard, his co-star in 2011 movie The Rum Diary, but the Edward Scissorhands star is adamant his new-found happiness has not caused problems with Paradis.
He says, "Vanessa and I get along wonderfully. There's no weirdness at all, no hostility. Life happens and we spent 14 great years together and raised a couple of kids who we are both incredibly proud of. We see each other all the time and giggle and hang out, just like we always did. She's a wonderful woman. I love her and she loves me and she's a great mommy. I have nothing bad to say, ever."
The actor goes on to insist his fiancee has grown close to his two kids, Lily-Rose, 14, and Jack, 12, adding, "(They are)... super close... They're like pals and it's great."
